If there's any way to send a copy of the files that'd be very useful. I imagine they'd be too big to attach here as a bug, so maybe there's some private webspace you could post them to? If not, can you make the error happen with a document you might be OK to post publically?

Just to make it clear, what's happening here is that we're running out of memory on the heap, and `new' is throwing std::bad_alloc . Since we're compiled with -fno-exceptions and don't try to catch exceptions anyway, the exception isn't caught and triggers C++'s builtin default - call terminate() . terminate() calls abort(), hence the signal 6 (SIGABRT).

On my machine when I last tested, `new' failed while allocating an array in the implementation of QString, probably while adding extra space to cope with expansion by operator+= . I'll re-test and see if I can find any place we're doing something silly with memory.

It doesn't crash here, but it would if my system had less RAM, since Scribus is hogging over 750MB and got as high as 950MB earlier. More importantly, we're using a QString in image handling, which suggests there might be a way to save some space. Perhaps we're reading a file very inefficiently or something.

edit: Mantis is absolutely butchering the backtrace when I post it here. We really need a "don't auto format this post" option. Here's the bt: [^]

This is an ugly one.
It brought my mac pro 10.8.5 to a halt and crashes Scribus.
